Neo Contra, Mr. Driller, and Tomba! 2 are Hitting the PSN Tomorrow

neo contra art 1

Good gracious, look at that giant mutant baby creature! Konami’s last departure from the classic side-scrolling gameplay that made the Contra series so popular came in the form of Neo Contra, a Playstation 2 follow up to Contra: Shattered Soldier. In case you missed the game on Playstation 2, it’s coming to the American Playstation Network tomorrow as a Playstation 2 classic.

The second game to be coming to the Playstation Network tomorrow is Mr. Driller, a Playstation One classic. The game is a puzzle game mixed with digging mechanics, as suggested by the game’s title. The game’s core mechanics are definitely unique, as you’ll be blazing through sections of multi-colored subterranean puzzles, clearing levels and collecting various power ups.

The final classic game to see the light of day tomorrow on the American Playstation Network is Tomba! 2, which comes in the form of a Playstation One Import. This means that the game will feature no translation of any kind, but thankfully it’s the kind of game that doesn’t really require reading of any kind. The Playstation Imports section of the PSN has become a haven to bring over games that would otherwise normally be impossible to localize and port today.
